This looks amazing. My only concern is who will be doing the art after the first arc. I can't see anybody else coming close to matching Crain's art.

Wow love the artwork

The first arc will be worth the price of admission simply for Crain's work. His art is fantastic. I have really been liking Kindt's work on Unity so I have high hopes for the story as well.

Is Crain doing the Colors too?

@judasnixon:

Crain is a digital painter there is no line work, inks and colors everything thing you see is from him

As beyond words amazing as the art is, the writing is utterly fantastic

I'm still not 100% sure if I'm going to read this.

But that Armor Hunters checklist... I'm hoping I don't have to buy every single one.

I hope Eternal Warrior makes some cameos since he's hanging about at the same time as Rai

Well, looks like I'm going to be adding another series very soon.

In old Valiant Eternal Warrior was on a team with Rai called Future Force

Looks awesome. I'll check it out.

The art is surely beautiful, but too much computer assisted for my taste( i'm an old school guy, i like my artist able to put more "artisanal" realness in their art). Plus i find the tone a little cold.

Rai looks absolutely amazing. I wish it would come out sooner, but I'm happy to give Crain all the time he needs to make it look as great as it does.

I'm gonna end up buying more than one cover for this. Gosh darn you Valiant! Gosh darn you to heck!
